The cool winter has induced Ismene amencaes to bloom here for me (for the first time). I am fortunate to have Hymenocallis tubiflora in bloom as well.

Has anybody attempted or had success self pollinating (pollen from same plant) Ismene amencaes?Of course, I could not resist putiing some Ismene amencaes pollen onthe hymenocallis tubiflora flowers.

Imagine a broad leaf/petioled, evergreen yellow spider lily that could bloom multiple times per season, as H. tubiflora can under ideal conditions!

I have some pollen of Ismene amencaes if anybody has a plant of that species ready to flower and I'd be glad to pass it on.

Thanks for any input
